A Muse Studio Thank You Inspiration

A Muse Studio Thank You Inspiration
Happy Monday!  Today, I have some bright orange thank you inspiration for you using A Muse Studio goodies! logo My first card was made using the gift card envelope die.  This die set contains a cute scalloped frame which I used with Onyx Shimmer Cardstock.  The sentiments & bold flower were stamped in black ink and the subtle flower images on the gift card envelope were stamped in orange ink.  I added a touch of sparkle to the flower center on the back with a glitter brush pen. 2017 AugRelease MelissaCard8 backview The second card I'm sharing today uses both the Bouquet Builder set as well as the fun Mad for Plaids set.  I die cut the stitched main panel using the Tag Bundle die set and then stamped one of the images from the plaid set in black along the lower edge.  The simple sentiment was also stamped in black just below the border stamp.  I stamped a single blossom in black and die cut it with the coordinating die.  To finish the design, I added a trio of clear sequins.  The assemble main panel was popped up with foam adhesive for dimension. 2017 AugRelease MelissaCard7 blog A person could vary the colors on these two designs very easily and these could be mass produced pretty quickly!

Have a marvelous Monday!

A Muse Studio New Release Day!

A Muse Studio New Release Day!
The day is finally here!  The A Muse Studio new release is now available! I have to say, my favorite from the release has to be the new Bunny Candy Package!  There are so many possibilities for this!  I dressed mine up with the pretty new cardstocks, googly eyes and a little pearl sticker for a tail!  Inside, I put a Hershey's Chocolate Nugget which is the perfect rectangular shape and size.  The nose and mouth are selectively stamped from the bunny in the (new release) Happy Spring set. 2017 MarchMelissa10 Closeup2 WM I also made a little treat bag to go with these cute critters using the little Lunch Sack Die.  I embellished it with a die cut Stitched Egg (new release ) and delicate, mini die cut flower and added a little Bermuda pearl sticker to the flower center.  The egg is watercolored using Splash Color Spray. 2017 MarchMelissa10 Closefup WM The simple sentiment is from the (new release) Sweet Easter set & is stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  I filled it with green crinkle paper grass and additional treats. I hope this gives you some ideas for simple spring/Easter gift ideas!  I'm thinking teachers and classmates might just need a few of these in a variety of colors and patterns!  I may even try adding some of the adorable Bunny Bums (cotton tails) that are available in the store to the back of the bunnies!  So cute! Have fun shopping in the online store and making the items on your wish list a reality!  You can find the new release here.  If you just can't narrow it down and want the entire new release, you can purchase the I Want It All Bundle!  Enjoy spring's arrival and stop back often as I'll be back with even more new release inspiration in the days ahead! 2017 SignatureContinue Reading...

Polar Bear Gift Bucket

This time of year, it's always good to give the boys' teachers a little thank you gift of some sort. I usually do so at Thanksgiving time, but didn't get it done on time this year. Secretly, now that I'm done making these little buckets, I'm kind of glad I did miss my usual gifting date because I got to go with more of a winter theme!


Anyone that knows me really well, knows I can't resist little buckets and filling them with things!  I found these recently at Target (Thankfully, after the whole security issue they had!).  I put some little goodies inside with a pen and a little notebook that looks a lot like an Oreo cookie!  I figured they'd appreciate at least a little calorie free goodness!  A gift card is always included because I know teachers need a few more things for their classrooms than what the school budget allows.

What about you?  Do you give any teachers little gifts this time or year and, if so, what gift ideas have you come up with over the years?


I hope you had a wonderful holiday!
